Scotland's Isles of Eigg and Easdale

The Isle of Eigg is one of the most beautiful Hebridean Islands. About five miles long by three miles wide, Eigg lies 10 miles off the Scottish West coast and features beautiful moors, beaches composed of white quartz and historic ruins that include Iron Age forts, a 6th century Christian church and Viking burial mounds. Eigg is home to musicians and craft workers, writers, film-makers and photographers. It even has its own record label and artist residency, craft shop co-operative, an annual Feis, the Howlin Fling Festival and a regular programme of concerts, ceilidhs, plays, workshops and films. At less than a mile in length, Easdale is the smallest permanently-inhabited island of the Inner Hebrides, off Scotland's west coast. Many visiting residents live in other parts of Scotland but have ancestral connections going back several generations. Every year - in September - they have a world-famous stone skimming competition - which we are there to document!
